First at the Beach, Acrylic on Canvas (with bevelled edge), 24x72, Michelle Morelan
close-ups- last one showing edge treatment
I used to run at the Wickininnish Beach near Ucluelet in the morning, and I was usually the first on the beach in the spring and fall. The sand is untouched, and you feel a sense of discovery as you come upon it from the densely forested trail. You know you are getting close because of the sound of the waves and seabirds.
This canvas is a great size for the end of a hallway, or an entry. The vertical orientation and high horizon line draws your eyes up, and accentuates ceiling height. I’ve never used a bevelled canvas before, but liked the end result. Your framer can re-stretch the canvas without the bevel, then frame this piece if you like- I suggest a simple thin, metal or wood frame. With the bevelled edge, it stands on it’s own without framing. It’s quiet, yet mystical, layered and intentful in it’s size. Contact me for pricing and shipping details.
